Education and e-Learning
Learning in All Languages
La Fuente Communication has proudly been serving the education sector for over 15 years. During this time, we have seen the power of language accessibility and the impact on English language learners’ (ELL) ability to learn, become motivated, engaged, and included in the learning process.
We are keenly aware of the many demands placed upon districts that are offering Pre-K to 12th grade, from maintaining daily communication with staff, parents, students, and the community to ensuring that all students have they necessary resources to advance learning. Many of our education sector clients have over 75 languages represented in one district. Managing the flow of communication in multiple languages is a feat all on its own.
During our 15 years of supporting our education sector clients, we have had the pleasure of being part of many academic ceremonies, athletic celebrations, parent-teacher conferences and many other events. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing parents, particularly parents of (ELL) students, who rely on our interpreting and translation language services, be fully engaged, and see the pride in their eyes for their students’ accomplishments.
We are here to support our education sector clients with a full menu of language services, including interpretation, translation, e-learning and multi-media services to ensure that learning takes place in all languages.
Parent Engagement is Vital to Learning
For limited-English parents and their ELL students, communicating in their own language is vital to student academic success. Keeping the flow of multilingual communication is no small feat when a district is supporting over 75 different languages represented in the student body. Research and districts indicate that when parents are engaged in student learning, students’ academic progress increases.
Districts are deeply vested in ensuring the parents are well informed and have access to the necessary learning tools and information to keep their students thriving. Our education clients rely on us to support their continuous and on-demand multilingual communication needs. They know they can count on us to meet their urgent needs and deliver on time and without compromising quality. We are knowledgeable, experienced, and well versed in the cultural nuances and varied dialects of the communities we serve. Districts trust us to deliver their message and information accurately and in a culturally competent manner.
